We are a small, established church in the growing city of Forney, Texas. We are mission-minded, active within and for our community. We are theologically progressive, in keeping with the historic reformed phrase “reformed and always being reformed according to the Word of God.”
What a small church DOESN’T mean: • A small church is not necessarily a dying church. • A small church is not “a bunch of old people.” • A small church is not two or three key families that control everything and fight amongst themselves. • A small church is not stuck with old traditions with the mindset of doing things “the way we’ve always done it.”
FPC Forney: • A multi-generational congregation with diversity in ages. • Members and leadership is comprised of people diverse in color, culture, language, sexual orientation, and marital/family status. • Our children and youth have active roles within our services; they are nurtured by a community which knows them by name and will do anything to help them. • We have vital, life-giving ministries including worship, bible studies, and service to our community. • We have roots dating back to 1872 and value historic spiritual disciplines that deepen our faith. • We also are open to the future, discerning the “new things” God is up to. • We follow Jesus by welcoming the stranger and sharing our stories of faith.
Our vision is to expand the sense of community with which we are blessed.
